Inclement Weather Information

As winter weather approaches, inclement weather conditions may require the closures of school buildings (calamity days). Students’ safety will always be at the center of our decision-making for delaying or closing school.

Please familiarize yourself with the Inclement Weather Information – which describes the procedures associated with weather related closures and delays.

Findlay City Schools notifies local TV/radio stations, school closure information is also posted here on the District website, social media platforms, and a text alert (Subscribe: Ohio Alerts) is sent out to those who subscribe.  Please reach out to your building principal for specific questions or concerns.

Superintendent Message

January/February 2021

I would like to welcome back our students and staff from Winter Break. I am excited for the start of a New Year and all the opportunities that will be provided in 2021.

It doesn’t matter if we are in a hybrid model or a remote model, Findlay City Schools  will continue to support students’ needs academically and emotionally. If your child is struggling in any area, we ask that you communicate with your child’s teacher, counselor, or building principal so that we can provide any assistance or support that is needed.  You can also find mental health resources on the FCS website.

Despite the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented, we continue to focus on student achievement, ensuring academic success for each and every student.  We have a lot to be proud of in this community and we appreciate your support, especially during the trying times of remote learning during 2020.  Strong partnerships equal great communities and the district is proud to be a part of such a great community.  Continue reading message from the Superintendent….

Starting 1-25-21 All grade levels will return to school four days per week (M, T, R, F). Wednesday will be a remote learning day.

FCS District Strategy


2015-2020 Strategic Plan

Mission Statement: Educating and empowering for life

100% of students
will graduate
on time.

100% of graduates will be enrolled in post-secondary or in the workforce within six months of their program.

Findlay City Schools will provide safe educational facilities that foster positive learning environments.

Findlay City Schools will develop and implement plans to ensure sufficient funding for current and future operations, programs, and facilities.

FCS will create learning environments in which all students, staff and families will feel physically and emotionally safe, valued, and engaged.

Findlay City Schools will serve as a partner in addressing root issues in Hancock County through collaborative efforts.




The Board shall permit any student from any school district in Ohio to apply and enroll in the District schools free of any tuition obligation, including special students as defined in O.R.C. 3313.64 (F), provided that all procedures as outlined in the administrative regulation are met,

  • Application procedures including deadlines for application and notification of students and the superintendents of adjacent districts whenever an adjacent district student’s application is approved.
  • Interdistrict Procedures for admission
  • Interdistrict Enrollment Application (Interdistrict Enrollment PDF or Interdistrict Enrollment MS Word)
  • District capacity limits by grade level, school building, and educational program are determined
  • Native students and previously enrolled adjacent students having preference over first-time applicants
  • No requirements of academic, athletic, artistic or extracurricular skills shall be required
  • No limitations on admitting handicapped students except if services required in an IEP are not available in the District
  • No requirement that the student be proficient in the English language
  • No rejection of any applying student because the student has been subject to disciplinary proceedings, except that if an applicant has been suspended or expelled by the adjacent district for 10 consecutive days or more in the term for which admission is sought or in the term immediately preceding the term for which admission is sought.
  • Procedures to ensure maintenance of an appropriate racial balance in the District’s schools
  • No applying student shall be admitted on less than a full-time basis, it being the intent of this provision to preclude a student from an adjacent district from selectively participating in only a portion of this District’s curriculum simultaneously retaining active status in another district.


The Board believes students should be permitted to attend their school of choice within the District. As such the Board will permit students to apply for attendance at their school of choice based upon criteria established by the school administration. The specific criteria shall include:

  1. Intradistrict Application procedures, including deadlines for application and
    for notification of students and principals of alternative schools
    whenever a student’s application is accepted. Only students wishing
    to attend another school need apply.
  2. Intradistrict Enrollment Procedures for admitting applicants to other schools including but not be limited to:
    • establishing District capacity limits by grade level, school building, and education program;
    • requiring students enrolled in a school building or living in the attendance area of the school building established by the Superintendent or Board be given preference over applicants;
    • ensuring that an appropriate racial balance is maintained in the District schools.
  3. Intradistrict Enrollment Application Form (Intradistrict Enrollment PDF or Intradistrict Enrollment MS Word)

The Findlay City Schools 2017-2020 Strategic Plan Objectives 3 & 4 Finance & Facilities

  • Findlay City Schools will provide safe educational facilities that foster positive learning environments.
  • Findlay City Schools will develop and implement plans to ensure sufficient funding for current and future operations, programs, and facilities.

Finance/Value/Assessment Strategy: FCS will review facilities routinely, judging their cost effectiveness and potential for future educational capabilities.

Action Steps

  1. Director of operations will facilitate and maintain a rolling 5 year maintenance plan aligning P.I. revenue with capital and maintenance needs.
  2. Finance committee, including the treasurer, will utilize a measurement tool to assess facility value. (including improvements, functionality, value of neighborhood, maintenance costs, students served)
  3. Administration will monitor enrollment trends and its potential impacts on facilities. (structures and grade configuration)
  4. Facilities department will continue to explore energy savings opportunities.

1:1 Device Initiative

This is an exciting time in Findlay City Schools (FCS). The district is implementing a 1:1 program, one Chromebook computer for each student, in grades 3 through 12 and is adopting Google’s G Suite for Education for all grades. These changes will provide access to communication, resources, and learning tools like never before and are part of our journey to implement student centered learning. Students will be able to communicate, create and collaborate, as well as develop and apply their critical thinking skills in a new age of digital media that was not available to the world just a few years ago.

Findlay City Schools educators are dedicated to continuing to offer rigorous and engaging learning opportunities for students. We’re excited about working with our students as they learn good digital citizenship in a safe and responsible atmosphere. We will continue to be amazed by what our students create and how they incorporate the tools of their generation into the learning that will shape their future. Tools like a Chromebook will allow them access to software that will encourage their artistic abilities, improve their reading and writing, and push them to think critically as they spark new interests and insights into their journey of being a lifelong learner.
